COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The (512) India Pale Ale is a big, aggressively dry hopped American IPA with smooth bitterness (~65 IBU) balanced by medium maltiness. 100% US malted grains, loads of hops, and great Austin water create an ale with apricot and vanilla aromatics that lure you in for more.

Vanilla in the aroma is present, but passion fruit somehow comes through in aftertaste. Piney hop with slight oily/slick mouthfeel.

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Sample at Flying Saucer in Austin. Pours a clear orange-amber color with a medium thin and fluffy white head that recedes slowly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Medium body with a piney hops character along with flavors of citrus and bready malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a grapefruit hops aftertaste. Above average all around.

nice thick creamy head, little malty for my liking but balanced very well with the hops. Not overly hoppy they did well.

On tap at Flying Saucer-Addison. Pours clear golden with white head. Aromas of tropical fruit, pine, and resiny hops. Flavors of tropical fruit, pine, hop resin, and nice malty base. Good amount of hop bitterness. Solid IPA.

Best beer in a long time, with an amazing fruity aroma and bitter taste. It just makes you craving for more, in a very different way of which similiar beers does.

Clear gold pour with a solid white head. Aroma of apples with hints of pine and floral. Very good bitter, slightly sour, dry. Nice lingering finish.

Tap @ Ginger Man, Dallas. Clear deep amber color with a medium off-white head. The nose is light peach and sweet syrup, some light grains and seagrass. The taste is light orchard fruits, light dry grassiness with a decent bouncy malt presence. Not bad. Easy-drinking with a medium body and prickly carbonation. Overall, a nice IPA.

Tap. Poured a clear copper with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus, tangerine, and light caramel. Taste is sweet grapefruit, tropical fruit, and light caramel. Starts out hoppy and bitter and ends that way, as well. Could really benefit from more of a malt presence. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. Pretty good IPA, but could use some refining. Not bad.
